Program Notes

For many years, the annual Christmas concert given by The Bach Choir in London's Royal Albert Hall has been a seasonal highlight, not least because for a part of the concert the children of the audience are invited to join the choir onstage to sing carols. In 1971 David Willcocks, as conductor of The Bach Choir, asked John Rutter to write a new carol with a refrain simple enough to be taught to the children onstage and immediately performed by them, together with the adults. Star Carol was the response.
